The University of Minnesota’s Arts Quarter Festival, now in its third year, offers a mix of happenings both indoors and outdoors. This year the U is celebrating its 150th anniversary, and the fest will honor and showcase the works of faculty and students. There’ll be photography and visual art exhibits, tunes from electro-pop rockers Marimba, and jams from bands featuring students. Hands-on activities include instrument making and pottery-wheel throwing from the Ceramics Collective. North Star Aluminum Pour and Bohemian Press will also be in attendance, and food trucks will offer nourishment.
